Bodega Norton Reserva 2005 $13.99
14% ABV 100% Malbec
Appearance: 8 second legs/tears, deep dark ruby
Aroma: Medium strength, tobacco, smokey (oak), berry-maybe black, slight pepper, an unknown floral presence
Mouth: Medium/Heavy coating, Blackberries hands down, lasting finish
Final thoughts: I'm a fan, I enjoy heavier wines such as Shiraz and Malbec. This was a new vineyard for me. I 've made a rule for myself not to decide if I would repurchase a wine, until the second glass, so I'll post my decision shortly, glass one is going fast......
Recommedations: Would pair well with hearty red meats
Person preference: Only individuals who enjoy oaked/heavy tannin wines would enjoy this one.
